    I went out at 8.30am with my trail shoes on and stayed on the road as much as possible as there was hardly any traffic. It was ok, even when it started snowing and I managed 7.6 miles. I then went to my new gym and did about 30 mins on the tread and 30 mins on the cross trainer, then had a play on some of the weight machines. I will need to come up with some sort of programme for working out on the weight machines - advice welcome! I also plan to do a circuit class on a Wednesday, Pilates on Thursday and aquafit on Sunday. The gym is really quiet late at night and it's lovely in there

    Has anyone heard of RaceReady running shorts? I've been looking for a good way to carry gels and came across them - highly recommended on many forums. They are from the US but available in the UK from this shop: RaceReady Shorts UK & Ireland | ULTRAmarathonRunningStore.com How do you all carry gels? What advice can you give me?

    Hi Sally

    I always buy bottoms with pockets, so at the minute i have a few pairs of Nike ones, which I fit one gel in. Then I wear a top with pockets and have another in there. Never needed more than 2. I've bought a waist belt thing for my marathon, which holds two smallish bottles of water and has room for gels. not tried it out yet but fingers crossed it will be comfortable.

    The shorts you are looking at look good. I've never run in shorts, but am planning on getting cycling shorts for my marathon and to train in in the run up to it (It will be April/ May so hopefully a bit warmer than it is now :-)!

    failing that i just put the gels in my ipod arm band. i hold the ipod instead.

    After some advice please ladies...

    Im struggling with headaches after runs but im going to the docs tomorrow, hopefully its just a coincidence as I don't want or need anything else hindering my training (or lack of!)

    What i'm really after is advice about my knees....

    Some of you may remember that I struggle with them a bit but the other day I ran 10k on the dreadmill and at mile 5 they just went, I couldn't put weight on them and had to walk the last mile - Torture as I was doing ok up until then!!

    I'm not a fast runner - it took me 80mins to do 10k in the end but I really worried about my knees and have only done a 2miler since.

    Do you think I should 'start again' and train like abeginner and see if it helps rather than trying tooo hard too quickly?? Ive had a month off from running, not a natural runner and perhaps expecting 10k is too much?

    Whats your thoughts??

    Should probably mention that I had no knee pain the day after, just whilst running.

    xx

    managed a 7.5 mile treadmill run.
    also didnt realise i looked like a murder victim at the same time. red hair dye, and sweat dont well, add a white shirt and i looked like a proper victim

    no wonder i got stared at and asked if i was ok.....

    also forgot i wasnt on the streets, and sang along to my ipod. i will be forever ashamed of the singing incident

    Had a awful run today, ended up spraining my ankle halfway through and then found out my runkeeper had turned itself off anyway so I have no idea how well or badly I did

    I'm sad today ladies, my knees couldn't cope and I had to walk home :-(

    Going to have to go to the docs and hope they take me seriously, I'm scared they won't for some reason?
